"Okay, that's it, we can all go home now."
"SuSE Linux 7.1, which was released a bit late in the United
States, has finally hit the shelves and if there was ever a
distribution Linux users could point to and say "this is the one
that can replace Windows," then this is the one."
"Bold words? Hardly. I mean, let's face it, any Linux user has
always known that the penguin can run rings around most anything
that comes out of Redmond. But getting this across to the
hypnotized Window users of the world has been difficult, to say the
least. SuSE's latest offering is a platform you could install out
of the box, plunk a Windows user in front of it, and they could
work with it. Not tweak it, not play with it, work with it. This is
the distribution Corel Linux wanted to be: easy to use for newbies,
with all of the power of Linux."
"The interesting thing here that there has not been a huge
dramatic change since the SuSE's 7.0 release. You won't be looking
at this and wondering why SuSE changed everything, because in
truth, they hardly changed anything."
